Foreclosure information per 1000 households across the country from January -July

Foreclosure is a word we can't escape.  Today while conducting real estate transactions the question as to how many foreclosures are in a neighborhood often comes up. While you may know this information for a particular neighborhood in your market it is also interesting to look at larger areas.

Patchwork Nation is a site that will show you how many foreclosure there are per 1000 in a congressional district in any state.

Foreclosure

 

  • Below the map you will find categories; in this case you will want to chose housing

Housing

  •  Look to the right and chose Foreclosures per 1,000 HH Jan-July
  • Then chose the state and the district you would like to view.

foreclosure per 1000

 This site offers much more than foreclosure information.  You can find out how many in a district make over $200,000, educational level, population etc. 

So if you are not familar with this site I think you will find it an interesting source of demographic information.
